The Eschenheimer Turm is one of the few remaining towers of the
medieval fortifications that encircled the city of Frankfurt. The
154-foot high (47m) gothic tower was built as part of the medieval
wall which encircled the city in the 15th century when
approximately 60 towers surrounded the city. Citizens used to build
high walls and watchtowers to protect Frankfurt from danger. Now a
popular tourist attraction in Frankfurt, there is a restaurant and
bar at the base of the Eschenheimer Turm that offers a good place
to people-watch in the busy plaza surrounding the tower.
